      f2fs: support atomic writes · 88b88a66
      Jaegeuk Kim authored
      This patch introduces a very limited functionality for atomic write support.
      In order to support atomic write, this patch adds two ioctls:
      The database engine should be aware of the following sequence.
      1. open
       -> ioctl(F2FS_IOC_START_ATOMIC_WRITE);
      2. writes
        : all the written data will be treated as atomic pages.
      3. commit
       -> ioctl(F2FS_IOC_COMMIT_ATOMIC_WRITE);
        : this flushes all the data blocks to the disk, which will be shown all or
        nothing by f2fs recovery procedure.
      4. repeat to #2
      The IO pattens should be:
        ,- START_ATOMIC_WRITE                  ,- COMMIT_ATOMIC_WRITE
       CP | D D D D D D | FSYNC | D D D D | FSYNC ...
                            `- COMMIT_ATOMIC_WRITE

      f2fs: skip punching hole in special condition · 14cecc5c
      Chao Yu authored
      Now punching hole in directory is not supported in f2fs, so let's limit file
      type in punch_hole().
      In addition, in punch_hole if offset is exceed file size, we should skip
      punching hole.

      f2fs: fix to truncate blocks past EOF in ->setattr · 09db6a2e
      Chao Yu authored
      By using FALLOC_FL_KEEP_SIZE in ->fallocate of f2fs, we can fallocate block past
      EOF without changing i_size of inode. These blocks past EOF will not be
      truncated in ->setattr as we truncate them only when change the file size.
      We should give a chance to truncate blocks out of filesize in setattr().

      f2fs: do not skip latest inode information · 19c9c466
      Jaegeuk Kim authored
      In f2fs_sync_file, if there is no written appended writes, it skips
      to write its node blocks.
      But, if there is up-to-date inode page, we should write it to update
      its metadata during the roll-forward recovery.

      f2fs: fix conditions to remain recovery information in f2fs_sync_file · 88bd02c9
      Jaegeuk Kim authored
      This patch revisited whole the recovery information during the f2fs_sync_file.
      In this patch, there are three information to make a decision.
      a) IS_CHECKPOINTED,	/* is it checkpointed before? */
      b) HAS_FSYNCED_INODE,	/* is the inode fsynced before? */
      c) HAS_LAST_FSYNC,	/* has the latest node fsync mark? */
      And, the scenarios for our rule are based on:
      [Term] F: fsync_mark, D: dentry_mark
      1. inode(x) | CP | inode(x) | dnode(F)
      2. inode(x) | CP | inode(F) | dnode(F)
      3. inode(x) | CP | dnode(F) | inode(x) | inode(F)
      4. inode(x) | CP | dnode(F) | inode(F)
      5. CP | inode(x) | dnode(F) | inode(DF)
      6. CP | inode(DF) | dnode(F)
      7. CP | dnode(F) | inode(DF)
      8. CP | dnode(F) | inode(x) | inode(DF)
      For example, #3, the three conditions should be changed as follows.
         inode(x) | CP | dnode(F) | inode(x) | inode(F)
      a)    x       o      o          o          o
      b)    x       x      x          x          o
      c)    x       o      o          x          o
      If f2fs_sync_file stops   ------^,
       it should write inode(F)    --------------^
      So, the need_inode_block_update should return true, since
       c) get_nat_flag(e, HAS_LAST_FSYNC), is false.
      For example, #8
            CP | alloc | dnode(F) | inode(x) | inode(DF)
      a)    o      x        x          x          x
      b)    x               x          x          o
      c)    o               o          x          o
      If f2fs_sync_file stops   -------^,
       it should write inode(DF)    --------------^
      Note that, the roll-forward policy should follow this rule, which means,
      if there are any missing blocks, we doesn't need to recover that inode.

      f2fs: give an option to enable in-place-updates during fsync to users · c1ce1b02
      Jaegeuk Kim authored
      If user wrote F2FS_IPU_FSYNC:4 in /sys/fs/f2fs/ipu_policy, f2fs_sync_file
      only starts to try in-place-updates.
      And, if the number of dirty pages is over /sys/fs/f2fs/min_fsync_blocks, it
      keeps out-of-order manner. Otherwise, it triggers in-place-updates.
      This may be used by storage showing very high random write performance.
      For example, it can be used when,
      Seq. writes (Data) + wait + Seq. writes (Node)
      is pretty much slower than,
      Rand. writes (Data)

      mm: implement ->map_pages for page cache · f1820361
      Kirill A. Shutemov authored
      filemap_map_pages() is generic implementation of ->map_pages() for
      filesystems who uses page cache.
      It should be safe to use filemap_map_pages() for ->map_pages() if
      filesystem use filemap_fault() for ->fault().

      f2fs: introduce f2fs_issue_flush to avoid redundant flush issue · 6b4afdd7
      Jaegeuk Kim authored
      Some storage devices show relatively high latencies to complete cache_flush
      commands, even though their normal IO speed is prettry much high. In such
      the case, it needs to merge cache_flush commands as much as possible to avoid
      issuing them redundantly.
      So, this patch introduces a mount option, "-o flush_merge", to mitigate such
      the overhead.
      If this option is enabled by user, F2FS merges the cache_flush commands and then
      issues just one cache_flush on behalf of them. Once the single command is
      finished, F2FS sends a completion signal to all the pending threads.
      Note that, this option can be used under a workload consisting of very intensive
      concurrent fsync calls, while the storage handles cache_flush commands slowly.
